Our latest meeting was a great success. We had about 24 individuals who showed up for our September meeting, we got some great business accomplished, and had a marvelous presentation on SOTA (Summits On The Air) by Doug, W1DMH. We also had a visitor - Ferenc, who is interested in getting his license. Paul, K1WO agreed to become a member of our technical committee, and Jeffrey, N1XUQ was nominated to fill the vacancy for Vice President.
